[Focus: high school kids]

Teens pay attention when John Graham asks them what they care about. The author of It’s Up to Us, a handbook for teens, Graham uses an easy tone and style, and plenty of dramatic stories, to show students that nothing is more important than living a meaningful life, and that the surest path to that meaning is service. “You can find thousands of ways to make a difference,” he says, as he offers practical tools for the search. “Find the ones that excite you and go for them with everything you’ve got.”
